In the beginning, THE OFF SEASON appears to be the story of a young couple from New York City moving up to Maine to get away from it all. Soon, strange things begin to happen in the one-room apartment that they occupy — things that the once close couple cannot discuss with each other. This is not a typical ghost story resulting from a tragic death, but the tale of a place haunted by guilt and the fear of abandonment.

“The Off Season delivers both remarkable character development and terrific “jump” moments. Prepare to scream, shudder and never shower in a motel again.”
— Corinne LowThe Chronicle

“deliberately-paced ghost story from executive producer Larry Fessenden. At first glance, the plot plays out like The Shining, but more probing reveals that there’s a lot at work here and that the film has merit on its own.”
— Martin & Porter, DVD & Video Guide 2007

Please Note: Despite what you may see depicted on the cover of the Lionsgate DVD, there is NO hand reaching out of the ground, nor a graveyard in this film.
There is a motel and there are ghosts.
